Our House - My Daughter and I

The problem that arises when you have your daughter working for you, albeit on a temporary gig, is that she sees exactly what goes on and as a result says things like 'for goodness sake stop stressing', This morning I was told in no uncertain terms that I need a break and she and a colleague spent half an hour trying to convince me that I should take the next five days off. They failed...... I think they're ganging up on me!

Our House - Of Toy Boys and Cougars!

Husband leaving through front door yesterday morning, mumbling something.

Me:                "What was that?"
Husband:        "Nothing"
Me:                "You said something"

Husband:        "No I didn't"
Me:                "Yes you did. What did you say?"
Husband:        "I didn't say anything"
Me:                "I heard you!"
Husband:        "I was talking to myself"  

                      Leaves to move car

Me:                "I do hate it when he does that. Think I'll find

                      myself a toy boy!"

Daughter:     "You'll probably find this gross but I know plenty of
                     people who would be very happy to have you as a

Me:               "Don't be silly".
Daughter:     "Yup!"
Me:               "I don't think so"
Daughter:     "Yes they would!"
Me:               "Gross!"

How was that for a start to the day???

Gross is right!

The Jester

The quiz I took
In Medieval times
I was a jester
A natural entertainer
One who can
Raise a laugh from the toughest
The quiz I took
In Medieval times
I was a jester
A maker of friends
One who knows
The popular rich and powerful
The quiz I took
In Medieval times
I was a jester
A political animal
One who can play
The diplomatic game
The quiz I took
In modern times
I am an actor
Or world leader
One who is good
At getting along
The quiz I took
Did not say
In modern times
The actor in me
Like the jester of old
Masks the tears
Wears the smile
And hides the pain

I have just come out of the shower. I am not a lover of shower gel but there was one hanging there (after all, I did buy it!!) so I thought that for a change, I'd use it instead of my usual creamy soap.

It's scent (or should I say taste?!) is of pomegranate and mango. So I emerged smelling somewhat fruity.

The reason I'm not overly fond of shower gel?

Why on earth would I want to smell like a fruit basket when I can smell of Chanel No 5???

Happy Birthday Natasha!

Twenty four years ago today was more than a special day in my life and in the the lives of my husband and son. We were blessed with a baby girl who turned out to be a joy in all of our lives.

Thank you Natasha for bringing such love and for being you. You are blessed with many qualities (some of which need a little more work!) and talents which you haven't even begun to tap into.

You've won awards
